    Hi Patrick,
    I am jut back from Patagonia (El Calafate and El Chalten). What a gorgeous place, although we had 8 straight days of rain and never really got to see Cerro Fitz Roy.
    I like the poem “No Black Shirt”. Having all the NOs seems to a bory place, until you read what is there: light incense, donation, merit … it starts to be promising.

    Something is wrong with the photo album. I cannot view it.

    (Great shots in the “recent photos” section!)

    I gained access to the photos thru Flickr. Nice shots!

    Hey, Larry. Thanks for looking and commenting. Sometimes the interface with Flickr is finicky. I can’t reproduce the error.

    Bobbie, I lost the Pentax Optio 10 point-and-shoot that works underwater. I still have Nikon, video and cellphone.

    Peter, the poem is a little “dark” and a reaction to visiting too many temples. I want to catch up on El Calafate and Patagonia.
